New release: Review & Giveaway: His Seductive Target by Nichole Severn

The second in Nichole Severn's Afterlife series has arrived!

What it's about:

NYPD Homicide Detective Veranika Russo used to hunt monsters every day on the job. Even though she’s been suspended from active duty, she can’t resist investigating her sister’s murder. But doing so triggers hallucinations that haven’t haunted her since childhood: demons. Only the demons are real. And one of them killed her sister.

Special Agent Grayson Wyatt of the FBI has signed a deal with the Deceiver himself to bring Nika to him by the next full moon. In exchange for his soul. But his seductive target makes him yearn for a life he hadn’t realized he wanted and, when it comes down to handing her over, he’s not sure he can give up the only woman capable of severing his deal with the devil.

On the run from the most powerful evil in the world, Nika and Grayson fight against time to track down the demon that killed her sister, but can she really trust the one man she fears the most?

My thoughts:
Angels and demons in a cosmic battle. It’s Constantine meets CSI. Another great installment in the Afterlife series.

This is the second novel in the Afterlife series. We get a bit more insight into the story of Vdarra from the first novel, but this book is the story of Veranika (Nika) Russo and her hottie, definitely not quite human Special Agent Grayson Wyatt. It works well as a stand alone, if you missed the first book. But the groundwork was laid in the first book. If you read them in order, it makes this story much richer.

When Nika’s sister is murdered we quickly learn this wasn’t an ordinary homicide. Facts don’t add up. Yet, she’s not willing to blindly trust the FBI agent who shows up on the scene. There’s a bit of history between them. That in combination with Nika’s reluctance to trust means it takes a while before the two characters come to a tentative truce to solve the murder. Yet, Grayson isn’t what he seems and he isn’t necessarily there to be on Nika’s side.

This is a fast paced story with good character development. The angels and demons aspect is unique from most stories because the lines between good and evil are not clear. It’s interesting and new.
